A loan of $700 helped fund the operations of Piggery.

Julita's story

Julita A. is a widow who lives on Luke Wright St. in Barangay Tinago, Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: a piggery and a food vending business. Julita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2002 because she aspired for something better for her family.

With the help of her past sixteen loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Julita has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 23,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of approximately $507, raising the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 17th cycle loan, she is borrowing 29,000 PHP, which she intends to use to pay for more feed for her piggery and to buy an additional hog to raise so that she can continue to save up for the future expansion of her business. Julita A. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
